republicans who were only interested in surrender. to the fever swamps on the right it revealed obama is a euro socialist radical who is a full - chicago style partisan and a wimp who is deferring to his leftist congressional overlords of the same time. he was pretty much what he said he was. a data oriented left of center technocrat that was above all a pragmatist comfortable with compromise, and willing to sacrifice the good in pursuit of the ideal it was the first evidence that after the campaigning of the change on the system outsider he would govern as a work the system insider but despite all of his talk, he understood they don't produce change. the stimulus is producing change. it's not producing perfection. it's making these better. before the stimulus less than 20% of doctors use electronic medical records. by 2015 just about all americans would have won. the would have 7 million americans out of poverty and that homelessness prevention program at 1.2 million people off the streets. so the homelessness population actually declined during the great recession come after the great re

behind the use of the welfare act. not only did he lie about what obama did but right now the old fashioned program that helps poor women and children is .07% of the federal budget. the caseload is down 50% in 15 years and we destroyed that program. we can debate all day. we destroy the program but they decided to resurrect welfare. again, the dog whistle and again saying that we are the ones looking out for you, the taxpayer and the rest of their message with this 47% thing about a quarter of those are seniors who again worked in order to now have their benefits. that isn't going to sit well with the people he was trying to turn out weeks ago. >> the republican party does of the generation of non-white up-and-coming like marco rubio in florida and ted cruce and texas and bobby jindal and louisianan who were all very conservative. it's been a a very impressive african-american woman from utah. estimate ultraconservative. >> does that help them at least present some image of a bigger tent as they move forward or the appealing to the same because of their politics and ideology? >> i

george bush and more recently with the obama administration, federal officials have issued from the morning's about medicare's financial state. and they use the term disruptive consequences to society if we don't fix this long-term trajectory. so you're right about that. that me also say something about globalization. the privilege of speaking of the british medical journal health care improvement conference in april on the evidence of overuse translating its improvement. asked his audience of people there from around the world, countries represented. and not sure there were all there at that particular session. i ask them, have you or someone you know ever had medical care that the was unnecessary. all these hands went up. as the nominee reside outside the united states command of his hands were not. i was surprised when people came up after words to say, finland, germany, uk, australia, new zealand. we are seeing in the emerging markets in brazil and india, evidence of overuse. this is a global phenomenon that we will have to tackle. provinces in canada 41 and 42 percent in some p

-second sound . -- sound bites. right now adult learning happens on the 24-hour news. so no one really understands the issues and it becomes emotionally charged and this is this is a chance for obama to really explain why he makes the decisions he does and maybe the opposition, to diagram it out and have a quiz afterwards to make sure. fill in that gap in learning the frankly people -- the one of the most popular videos are about the health care plan. these are caps in people's learning. >> host: it's a pleasure reading this book and it was nice meeting you. thanks for joining us. >> guest: oh, it was a pleasure. .. >> this is app hour and 15 minutes. >> i've just been told by c-span, i'm addressing the most serious audience i've ever addressed all of these years.

believe liberalism true or right in any objective sense. obama is not a post modernist i'm happy to report, but the confusion about truth, very visible in his discussion of slavery and the declaration of indense in "the audacity of hope," and his confusion of the truth combined with the liberal impatience with the constitution and its forms, makes a harrowing conversation. i am the change, as mr. obama almost said, reminds us that not every change is an improvement. a movement that began by promising to every american a new freedom and a new deal, beyond necessaritiveness runs from paying its own bills, a movement that promised complete spiritual fulfillment in a great society incoming the right to choose one's own values and lifestyle now verges on confessing that no lifestyle can be said to be better than any other. the movement that put such faith in its leaders' ability to understand, predict, and control the future now faces a very uncertain and perilous future with or without barack obama. thank you very much.

with obama it's come right back again. we are all walking on eggshells again. not very delicately on those eggshells. like my introduction. [laughter] i am going to it debate party tonight. the host called it racist pizza debate party because he's having it in his fifth apartment. it's an apartment. maybe it's not being taken quite as seriously but it did work in 2000. more white people voted for barack obama 2008 than voted for any democratic candidate for president in nearly 40 years. tied with clinton and incumbent in 1996 and look at the wonders that produce. it produces disaster as it did nric city and it has with barack obama. you can see in last week's debate, that was the first objective thing obama has. for four years he has been coddled by the media. i mean i guess he faced sort of a tough opponent with hillary and linton but who is she? she is the wife of an impeached ex-president and that is how she made her name. still, she was better than john mccain. and you know in the hillary obama debate, the questions going question's going to obama were so thoughtful saturday nigh

the country, should not be close. okay. barack obama should by all rights by wiping the floor with romney. the fact we are near to electing an investment banker president four years after the financial crisis is astonishing to me. how is it even possible? you know, what made it possible was that the reason barack obama hasn't built up a roosevelt lead and hasn't, you know, won democratic majority and commerce last for forty years in the way roosevelt did, he never took the steps roosevelt did. he never tackled the situation directly. it's not just the bank bailout. that's the biggest failure. it's across the board. there was no direct federal hiring to deal with unemployment. we got a form of national health insurance. but come on, we got bob dole's plan.

that the republican party is tilted right. if from the beach obama then it will be because he has won a lot of independent voters to moved from party the party election to election. to me the best evidence that the tea party movement is not here to stay, at least matured, it has entered the bloodstream is by the behavior, the voting behavior of congress. you see, you know, for example, the ryan budget. you know, both times, in 2011 and 12 when it came up for a vote, all these republicans who previously voted against it now vote for it. the reason for this is that if they fail to vote for it there will be primary by someone who will get to their right. in fact, one of the people that i read about in the buck is a moderate republican named joann emerson and misery. and she voted against a couple of things that, you know, were not -- or firing behavior was not deemed sufficiently right wing. but some things saying hey, here is what the primary. as of that sort of behavior strikes fear into the arts of a lot of legislators. >> and if governor robin is a response to that from the tea p

a team, okay? just happened that way. president obama did have to make the gutsy call to violate another nations foreign sovereignty to go in and take this man, and you get right. he didn't tell them we're coming. i guarantee if somebody would've been waiting on us. but he admitted that he wasn't for waterboarding. guess what? president bush okayed waterboarding that broke ksm that told him what occurred was that was going through the compound. so it took both presidents doing what they thought was right and an active teamwork that they didn't know they were doing to get the job done. but why is it considered a weakness for one party to ask another part to help about? or how simple is this? i really don't have all the answers. i'll to you what, if we can sit down and like talk to some of us, maybe we could come up with that. but that's not what are as a country anymore, and i'm afraid i'm and i might be wrong, i might be out of touch, but i'm afraid, i see one of 50 patients a week to kind of elitist, i'm afraid what i like being divided as a nation just because you have to be a
